Is it difficult to get an editorial role in publishing?
Some Editorial positions are notoriously competitive (particularly in trade publishing). But there are so many different types of editorial jobs, from editorial assistant, desk editor, project editor to commissioning editors, etc… and so many different types of publishing sectors, there must be an Editorial role waiting for you! Do not forget about educational, scientific or professional publishing, as these are very dynamic and rewarding areas of publishing. How do you learn about these? Research and networking! Talk to publishing professionals, attend events to get to know different markets, get in touch with your recruiter. Keep an open mind when looking for an editorial role as the right opportunity might be at a publisher you’ve never heard of before!
It really depends on the editorial role you are trying to get. If you are intending to go towards commissioning, a commercial mind set and networking skills are essential, as well as a strong relationship building aptitude. If you are considering project editing, then project management and organisation would come in handy. Generally a good attention to detail, strong interpersonal skills and the will to learn are valued in an editorial role. Soft skills are all the rage, and a positive, flexible and a proactive approach to work will get you places!

A common misunderstanding about temping is that it distracts you from finding your dream job! This is not the case…
Not only that but temp positions can turn into permanent ones! If you work hard, stand out and prove yourself they won’t want to let you go!
`Atwood Tate were really helpful and friendly when I first went to meet them and got me into a temp role really quickly at a great publishing house… They were also really enthusiastic and encouraging when my temporary role got made permanent (even though that meant cutting my temporary contract short). Would definitely recommend Atwood Tate for anyone looking to get into publishing!’
`It has been a great success since registering in May this year. The windows into different areas of the publishing industry that assignments offered have proven invaluable for securing a permanent publishing role. I’ve felt support from start to finish.’

What is sales in Publishing?
Sales role can vary in different ways – you can be doing an office-based sales role or it can also be home working with a company car where you drive to meet clients on site. Sales in publishing is often a very friendly environment and it is more of a warm selling because bookseller/wholesalers knows what sells the best for them.
Not at all! A Business Development role, which in most cases means cold-calling and developing new client relationships. However, Key Account roles is more of a relationship-building role with your designated clients/regions. For Sales Representative roles, you will be most likely travel a lot, from arranging meetings to face-to-face, you will get to visit your region a lot.
The perks? Travelling!
Sales role, especially international sales means there are unlimited opportunities to travel with the role. I once talked to a candidate who looks after international sales who has travelled from the UK to Singapore, then Australia and back. When I was working in publishing sales back in Hong Kong, I was also very excited to have trips travelling to Frankfurt for the book fair and then Shanghai and Beijing too. If you love travelling, you will not be disappointed!
- Friendly, observant and knowledge (of the market) will help you go a long way
- Budgeting and planning trips are usually included in the job too, so good numeric skills will definitely help
